Does anyone have any experience loading the 350 grain Sierra Matchking in the 378 Weatherby?  I'm going to start playing with one soon and I would like to know what powders may have worked well, and how much was used.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Rumor
« on: December 04, 2012, 03:04:32 PM »
I have been out of pocket for a while, so please forgive me if this topic has been covered. I heard a rumor that Weatherby is seriously considering adding a .264 to it's lineup. I consider the source reliable. Didn't hear what case it might be based on.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Problems typing a message?
« on: September 19, 2012, 08:33:35 PM »
Is anyone else having trouble typing a reply on this site?  When I try to reply to a message every 10th or so letter is being left off and I have to go back and correct it.  I thought I was having keyboard problems but I have no trouble composing an email or typing a document.  Just curious.

Has anyone tried any Reloader 17 in any of the Weatherby calibers from 257 through 300?  If so, what kind of results did you get?

I've got a pair of 10x42 EL Swarovski binoculars and a pair of 10x45 Zeiss rangefinding binoculars on consignment at a local gun shop.  If anyone is interested, send me a private message and I'll give you the details.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / McMillan-Bank of America
« on: April 21, 2012, 08:44:17 AM »
I just want to make sure everyone is aware of the situation with Bank of America telling McMillan they no longer wanted their business.  This is due to the fact that they have transformed from a firearm accessory manufacturer to a firearm manufacturer.  Bank of America received bailout money from the government.  Please look this up on the web how the meeting went down with the two companies.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Niteforce scope on a Mark V
« on: December 19, 2011, 07:12:01 PM »
I have a Niteforce NXS 5.5-22x50mm scope on a G30 McMillan action rifle.  When I eject an empty case the case tends to hit the huge windage turret and deflect back into the action.  I've tried to move the scope forward and back to no avail.  I'm thinking of moving this scope to a Mark V and was wondering if any of you with the Niteforce on a Mark V have had this problem?  I don't want to go through all that resighting in if I'm going to have the same thing happen.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / 264 Weatherby Magnum
« on: October 29, 2010, 09:04:10 PM »

I have completed load development for my new custom 264 Weatherby.¬  The rifle is built on a G30 McMillan action with a McMillan stock, Krieger barrel (#5), and¬  Jewell trigger.¬  It was built by Shane Elder Custom Rifles in Lonoke County Arkansas.¬  We are turning 257 Weatherby brass into 264 by running and expander button through the neck of the case.¬  We are using a 257 body die and a neck bushing die to resize fired cases.¬  This rifle is an absolute pleasure to shoot.¬  It is rare for this rifle to shoot over eight tenths and almost every load I put through it shoots between two tenths and a half inch with the Berger 140 grain VLD hunting bullet.¬  I have settled on 66.3 grains of IMR 7828 at 3303 fps.¬  The rifle has a Nightforce NXS 5.5-22X50 scope mounted with Talley rings and bases.¬  I have a Kenton Industries scope dial ordered. A good friend of mine had a near identical rifle built at the same time I did and he is having the same results that I am.  Please excuse the jacked up picture.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Actual Muzzle Velocity
« on: April 23, 2009, 01:33:04 PM »
I've been using my chronograph about 15 to 20 feet from my muzzle.  My .300 Wby averages about 3,200 FPS at this distance.  Does anyone have any idea what the actual muzzle velocity would be?  I've been leary of firing the rifle right next to the chrony.


Rifles / 224 Varmintmaster

What is a German 224 Varmintmaster new in box (unfired) with a 24" barrel worth?

Shotguns / 3 1/2 inch chamber 12 ga.
« on: October 06, 2007, 12:29:26 PM »
I would love to see Weatherby produce a 12 ga with a 3 1/2 inch chamber.  Preferably an over under.  I am a duck hunter in Arkansas and I don't think I know anyone who doesn't hunt with a 3 1/2.
